Default 87 Civic Brake

Hi All!

I just picked up a 1987 Civic in fairly nice condition for my GF's son.. *however* it needs some brake work..

The pedal if stepped on easily goes almost to the floor -but- if you step on it fast it works great.. sounded like air in the lines, sooo...

I've begun bleeding the brakes using the procedure from the repair manual but when I get to the rear wheel we've gone thru over a bottle of fluid and after an initial bit of air, now when the pedal is depressed it starts out streaming ok but every time trails off with bubbles... done this at one rear whell about 20 times

No leaks anywhere

P.S. We've kept an eye on the reservoir level, never letting it get below the low level line.

does it take MORE fluid?

getting fustrated.... don't make me call the garage lol
